to the statute of our speaker. -- stature of our speaker. let's take a few minutes to provide some useful historical context. to think back to the beginning not only of -- not of this century, but the last. the world today is transfixed by the phenomenon of rapid economic growth in a number of countries that are rapidly treating major powers in the world. of course, the biggest are china and india. some others that would look fairly large in comparison to greet carter -- powers in the past, such as vietnam, russia, indonesia, and brazil. they are becoming much bigger players in the world. 100 years ago, the rise of germany as a great power led to two at catastrophically destructive wars. that also spawned a number of other tragedies, such as nazism and bolshevism, which turned the 20th century, which had begun with a decade of great promise, into the bloodiest in history. we cannot afford to repeat that history with even more terrible weapons of the 21st century. the challenge of managing a merging towers has become, arguably, the major challenge of our time. not that we are short on chal

of one broken promise after another. the president told us we would be saving $2,500 per household if we passed this health care bill. the americans' health insurance premiums have increased by almost that amount, which means the president was off by a stunning $5,000 per household. and americans are pulling their pockets inside out saying, mr. president, i don't have the money to pay $5,000 more per year on my health insurance policy and of course they don't. because this has to be the crown jewel of socialism. that's what government health care is. and senior citizens realized early on, they have the most to lose by the president's health insurance policy because what they found from this bill which has been commonly called obamacare is that $575 billion will be stolen away from them out of medicare. and not only will they have $575 billion less in medicare, still looking to having to spend, senior citizens out of their pockets $200 billion more in increased taxes for medicare. that's a big loss for america's senior citizens. but it doesn't stop there, mr. speaker. millions of american

us now are governors from two of those states, rick scott of florida who comes to us from san francisco and terry brandstet from virginia. welcome to you both, gentlemen. let me start with the question that stirred so much interest at the end of the week which is a set of new possible waivers of the federal government of work requirements under welfare reform. this would appear on the service at least to be a case of the states getting more flexibility in how they administer the work requirements for receiving welfare benefits. let me start with you, governor, and how you see these waivers. some people are saying it will gut the law. >> well, unfortunately i think this is a huge step in the wrong direction. i was governor with tommy thompson from wisconsin and john an -- angler and we worked with bill clinton to get the well form -- welfare reform passed and it was a program based on job training and work, and we helped move millions of people off the welfare roles and into permanent employ meant. we reduced the cost of welfare and medicaid as a result of it. it was very succe
instead of these maintenance of effort requirements that the federal government has imposed on us. >> governor, forgive me. >> they want to give us more flexibility, do it under medicaid. >> i am going to come to medicaid in a moment. let me turn to governor scott. governor, how do you see this adjustment in the federal government's rules on the work requirements for welfare? >> governor brandsted is right. it is great if they give us more on medicaid. i mean, with this, perm responsibility is very -- personal responsibility is very important. in our state the number of people on unemployment has gone from 568,000 to 321,000 and part is personal responsibility. people need to be going out and looking for a job. we don't want people to stay on welfare. we want them to get back to work. that's what governors want. we want our states busy with more jobs. >> governor, aren't you now in a position with the flexibility granted to you by the federal government to set the welfare to the work requirements pretty much how you want it done. >> we will look at this, but we will keep the respo
